Governments should "encourage the development and use of open standards, through processes as open to participation and contribution as possible"
The results of government-supported research should be readily available for inclusion in open standards
Governments should create incentives for early disclosure of intellectual property rights affecting open standards, because historically, companies have waited, in order to maximize damage claims
Open Source Software
Governments should not mandate any particular license, such as requiring open source software only; however...
No citizen should be required to use the hardware or software of any particular vendor
International procurements should also supprt inter-operability requirements
Open Innovation (such as 'peer production' systems like WikiPedia and eBay user ratings)
To foster open innovation, federally funded, non-classified research should be widely disseminated, following the example of the NIH (National Institute of Health)
"Any legislation or regulation regarding intellectual property rights [should be] weighed with a presumption against the granting of new rights ... because of the benefits to society of further innovation through greater access to technology."
